SUMMER IN THE MOUNTAINS! PURGATORY TOWNHOUSE @ DURANGO MOUNTAIN RESORT

Durango Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Full Bathroom + Extra Vanity Sink in Bedroom

This condo is in an excellent location for summer fun! Durango can get hot and you can escape the heat by sleeping at elevation! The San Juan mountains can take your breath away in all 4 seasons - take a scenic drive to Silverton or Ouray and see how many times your jaw drops! We are an easy scenic drive of just 30 minutes north of Durango about half-way to Silverton. The resort is open in the summer with great activities as well as the winter. There is an alpine slide, scenic chair lift, mini golf, bungee trampoline, mountain biking, hiking, and much more! Outstanding horseback riding just across from the resort. Check the resort's website for Music in the Mountains dates.

Activities: The San Juan Mountains is one of the most beautiful mountain ranges in the country. Summer time in the San Juan Mountains is spectacular. A hike or bike amid the wildflowers, waterfalls, and wildlife in the high country is unforgettable. There are numerous trails that will inspire you. There are many lakes and rivers for fishing and public use. Durango Mountain Resort offers many family activities including an alpine slide, mountain biking, and chair lift rides. A scenic drive north to Silverton or Ouray known as the Million Dollar Highway is jaw-dropping. There are Jeep tours of mining towns, rafting, fly fishing, and the famous Narrow Gauge Railroad! Mesa Verde National Park is also a great day trip for the family. In the fall, the colors are beautiful as the aspens change with the pines and mountains in the backdrop. Great photo ops.

This is a Ski-in/Walk Out Condo at Durango Mountain Resort (DMR). No shuttles! We are a 100 yard walk to the lift line! We also have great rates! We have a cozy wood fireplace to snuggle up to after a great day on the slopes! Fully stocked wood available in the winter months.

Durango Mountain Resort is a family-friendly resort. There are many friendly greeters and safety-patrol wanting to assist you. The mountain has great terrain for all levels of skiers. Check out a trail map and find your favorite run! Check out the tubing hill, sleigh rides, snowshoe walks, snowmobiling, nordic skiing, and many more great activities at the resort.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi Steve & Roxanne,



Our trip was Awesome! The Condo had all the items necessary to cook wonderful meals and we had a great time. Usually, we have to eat out alot, because we had no kitchen. This gets really expensive. We have never had the opportunity to stay slopeside and it was so much better. The condo was very clean and homey feeling. . Wish we could come more often!! We will definitely stay at the Condo verses a Hotel next time we go to Durango. There was plenty of wood for the Fire, and plenty of towels, etc. Overall, it was a wonderful Vacation. Thanks Steve & Roxanne for our stay at your Condo. Love Colorado ~



Thanks Again,

Cherie

NICE CONDO FOR SUMMER RENTAL OFF THE BEATEN PATH

  • 3 of 5
This is a nice property about half way between Durango and Silverton in a large resort complex with many different condo buildings. The only downside for our stay was the bathtub drain was plugged and the tub was kinda gross when we arrived. The owner worked with the maintenance man across the way and had a couple of fellows out to fix it by 4 pm. Cheers for the maintenance guy! He followed through on getting the drain open and even bleached the tub even though he wasn't responsible for having to do that. We would stay here again at the same low rate.

GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Myself and my friends stayed here while skiing and we found it to be a great place to stay for DMR. It was clean and the owner worked with us under very short notice due to issues we had with the original cabin that we were staying at (not associated with this owner). The location is very convienent and you can get the slopes with a small walk, it is probably 200 yards to the bunny slope and 300 yards to the main lifts. Ski lockers were also very helpful.

Nothing but good things to say, I thank the owner again for working with my wife to ensure we had a nice place to stay for the remainder of our trip.

GREAT VACATION SPOT!

  • 5 of 5
What a great place for my family to vacation. The condo looks just like the pictures. The kitchen is well stocked with appliances and utensils which made it real easy to eat in. The condo is located outside of downtown but was still close enough for us to do all that we wanted while visiting. If you want to stay in for a day the resort offers a variety of activities for all ages. My family was sad to see this vacation end, thanks for providing us a great space during it.

GREAT PLACE FOR FAMILY!

  • 5 of 5
What a nice place to take our family for vacation. The condo looks exactly like the pictures- a true "what you see is what you get" place. The kitchen had a great variety of appliances and utensils which helped when having meals in. We enjoyed the outside of the city location, as it was still close enough to do all that we wanted. If you want to stay at home for a day the resort offers a variety of activities for all ages and seasons. Our family enjoyed our stay and was sad to go.

BEST VACATION EVER!

  • 5 of 5
I just wanted to express my sincere "thanks!" in opening up your condo to my family. It was truly the best vacation ever. Everything, from the time that we arrived, until our departure, was perfect. You had everything right there, available to us. It can be somewhat of a challenge to leave behind all the ammenities of home, especially traveling with 2 children (8 and 10). But when the time came, they didn't want to leave! We didn't want to leave! With all of the adventures yet to explore, we can't wait to go back. We haven't even been there in the winter, yet! I can't wait to go back! Your place is awesome!

PURGATORY CONDO

  • 3 of 5
If I could select 3.5 stars, I would. After confirming our reservation, we received an informational packet that was very thorough and useful. Steve and Roxanne were very gracious, even after we mistakenly arrived a day before we were supposed to. The condo is definitely better located for winter stays being close to short ski slopes and away from the crowd of Durango. It is well-equipped if you plan to cook for yourself/family. As advertised, the condo is a minimum 20 minute drive from any sizeable stores or restaurants. It is obvious from the cabinet doors, the carpet and other features that show wear, the condo has been used extensively.

The major "bad" feature of the condo are the mattresses, which were very hard and had no mattress pads. After three nights on these mattresses, we could barely move and anyone who slept on a bed had either a stiff back and/or and stiff and sore hips. The only member in our party who was not stiff slept on the couch, without pulling out the hide-a-bed.

Steve and Roxanne request that guests remove shoes upon entry into the condo. While we respected this request, it was obvious that numerous others have not as the carpet is filthy, with many stains and spots.

Sliding glass doors are a feature of both rooms, but the doors open to the parking lot, thus every car that parked after dark illuminated the rooms. The bedroom sliding glass door has vertical, venetian blinds that did not eliminate any light, so once daylight arrived, the room was completely lit. If light causes you difficulty in sleeping, this is not the location for you.

Prior to agreeing to the use of this condo, we inquired as to A/C and were assured that the mountain temps alleviated the need for A/C. This might normally be true, but floor fans would have been very useful to cool the condo from mid-80s temperatures every evening when we returned from sight-seeing.

All in all, the condo was serviceable, but not really comfortable for summer activities. Based on the other reviews, it sounds much more suited to winter use.

Owner's Response: We provide a very comfortable and affordable place to stay in one of the most gorgeous areas that I have ever traveled to and love for others to experience it. Summer is one of the best times to come to the San Juan Mountains. This particular guest mixed up his dates and arrived a day early to a condo that had not been cleaned yet. He was irate and even though it was his error, he obviously wants to continue to vent his anger. We are very attentive to our guests, provide a great lodging deal for this amazing area, and upkeep the condo to a very high standard. It is not luxury, but it is clean and more than comfortable; we have never had a complaint about the comfort of our beds and slept in them myself in late June and it was very cozy. We have receipts of getting our carpets professionally cleaned in May of this year, we have large ceiling fans and large glass sliders in each room to get plenty of air flow at 9,000 ft in elevation, we bought nice down comforters to replace the bedspreads so the duvets could be washed after every guest, the cabinets were redone many years ago and have absolutely no wear on them, new blinds in the bedroom in November 2010, and we have virtually no traffic in the resort area to deal with lights from cars. If you see 2 cars pass in a night, it is busy. I feel this review is very much tainted by people who chose the wrong location for their vacation since they obviously would have preferred to be in the downtown area and they also started their vacation on a negative note by arriving on the wrong date. We truly care about the happiness of our guests and do not let our property get worn down so families can have an affordable, comfortable vacation.

Map

The resort is still at 7,600 feet elevation making it usually 10 degrees F cooler than Durango and offers a cool alpine escape from the summer heat.

Ski: Durango Mountain Resort (Purgatory) prides itself for being a family friendly resort for Alpine skiing and the chair lift is only a 150 yd walk! Snowboarding, Alpine skiing, and even ski biking are available. The mountain has lots to offer all levels of skiers and DMR does an outstanding job of having plenty of staff to make a safe, family environment. Outstanding Nordic skiing is available across the highway from the resort. Breathtaking views. There are many guide services offering snowmobile, snocat, and sleigh ride experiences.
